After reaching success at a young age, in 2012 after drifting from the Oola principles, the OolaSeeker found himself bankrupt, divorced, disconnected, driving his Mom’s crappy Taurus, and living in a motel on the wrong side of town. Lost and at his darkest point, he reached out to the OolaGuru.
The OolaSeeker made a commitment at that low point that if re-applying the simple Oola principles in his own life can get him out of this dark place, he would share it with the world. Shortly after re-applying the simple Oola principles in his own life, the OolaSeeker got his Oola back. He was once again connected to his dreams, his purpose, and the path necessary to get there.
The OolaGuys choose a book as the first way to share what they have learned. The book, “Oola: Find Balance in an Unbalanced World” was released in 2012, and hit International Best Seller in 2013.
The first OolaPalooza was held in December of 2014 at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas. Why the Hard Rock? This was where it all started. A group of guys would meet annually in Vegas, sit on the floor in a hotel room with 3 x 5 notecards in 7 stacks and write down the goals they were committing to for the following year. What kind of father/husband to I want to be? What are my goals for my business and finances? What am I going to do to connect with my purpose? How am I going to find time for fun and for friends?
The inaugural event ended with each person in the room declaring one thing they were going to do in their life to point it in the direction of their dreams. To be accountable, they wrote it on a sticker, stood on a stage, and with knees knocking and their voice shaking, declared what they knew they needed to do, and slapped the sticker on a surfboard and sparking positive change in their life.
The results of this simple exercise were amazing. This simple yet powerful moment has change so many lives in so many ways, we became inspired to take this one step further. We want your dream. We want you to declare positive change. We want you to find that awesomeness that is inside of you. We are so committed to each of us living our best lives, and making this increasingly unbalanced world a better place for our kids, that we are driving a VW Bus across America collecting your dreams.
Our mission is simply to change the world with a word. We do this by making us better as individuals, and as we become better, our families become better, our communities become better, and the world becomes better.
